Venus, Signal Rejector

I see summer skin rolling black trees
its all over over me
roll over that hill, I'll bet he's watching me still
and I see summer skin rolling black trees

I see watery gravy mint leaves
and I'll do and i'll do as I please
no excuses for fate
to try and squeeze and squeeze
I see watery gravy mint leaves

No, you ain't never seen a dead breathing living sound
In flames and wonder we come clean

I see stars shaking like leaves
and you shake, shake till you come clean
I see mars begging for me
and you shake, you shake till you
make it all gleam

Marigolds and Sunlight

Your body is covered in the sweet scent of long lost ghosts
whose path once covered in marigolds, can now return you to the river of your birth.

You extend your hand to drink and are taken over by the abyss. Its swell and overwhelming power embraced you once before your days on earth.
Now your fiery eyes burn bright, leading you back to your wanderings.

That only I recognize your scent, is a gentle curiosity that I keep to myself in times of lonely revolt.

You are a man worthy of marigolds, a man worthy of the sun's beams
whose smile brightens the shores like a thousand reflections.
Your fingers barely touch me in light dreams and I find you sparkling amongst the ashed rubble.

There will be many days like this, when we will travel together like ancient creatures, sharing ancient lives and slowly unfolding into ancient times.

Recognize me only by my watery womb and drowned eyes
and I will lay your way home amongst the marigolds and sunlight.
